  1. Der_Schnappulierer scored this whisky 81 points Member Senior

    Tastes good, everything is nicely interwoven and dense, but I like the 10 year old Bladnoch (2018) a little better because of his multi-layered nature.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Very fruity, smells of fresh apples and apple compote at the same time. In the background flowery-floral, green grapes, slightly rancid. Something closed the whole thing. The alcohol is well integrated.
    • Taste
      80 80
      Nice oak, apple (very present), vanilla.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Light finish, medium-long, with beautiful oak notes.

  2. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    The new Bladnoch have often disappointed, this one offers everything a young Bourbon Bladnoch needs. Quite intense whisky and tasty. Not a complexity monster now, but it sums up the Bladnoch style. The only downer, priced quite ambitiously for a 11er bourbon barrel standard in drinking strength.
    • Nose
      light fruity, grassy, citrus, very intense, vanilla almost a little grapefruit.
    • Taste
      In the mouth it is strong, citrus, slightly tart, but also nice vanilla sweetness, something floral.
    • Finish
      Finish rather dry, astringent, citrus peel, tart, but always with a fine sweetness.

    Similar profile to the 10 year old. This one has a bit more typical bourbon influences and the taste is sweeter. I think it was successful

  9. SwiftyMcVeigh scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Very good ex-bourbon whisky! The price is justified, if not a bargain.
    • Nose
      88 88
      First: Strong Bourbon Vanilla. Then light fruits like pear and apricot. Grassy, also some hay. Plus lemon in the background. Coherent and well rounded.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Creamy, gentle start. In addition to the aromas that one had in the nose (the lemon pushes forward a bit), the oak is discreetly noticeable.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Milk chocolate, light fruits and citrus with vanilla. Medium length.

  10. LeChiffre scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Nice bourbon barrel maturation which, in addition to the typical elements, has a great oily-waxy profile. Acts older than 11 years. 87 points, tendency 88.
    • Nose
      88 88
      fruity-sweet; fresh light fruits; Citrus; great beeswax notes; Vanilla crescents; Oak
      - wonderful fruity bourbon nose that definitely looks older than 10 years
    • Taste
      87 87
      creamy; -oily waxy; sweet and sour light fruits; Citrus; Vanilla; bitter, pleasantly spicy oak notes
    • Finish
      87 87
      fruity; Citrus; slightly waxy; delicate tart oak wood
